    I was looking at the Fias Co farm website, and my goats look like they have milk neck, but they have been weaned for at least 6 weeks.
    Both of my Nubians have a lump or swelling where they neck meets there head. It is soft and does not appear to cause them any discomfort. It is more noticeable in one than the other. They are eating fine, drinking, and 'talking'.

    Any ideas?

    thank you
